Customer reviews for The Motus



Worth every penny, what a great object. Very sharp clear colors. I am happy thank you Vanishing.

Beautiful! Playing with the colors is almost hypnotic.



This belongs on a desk as much as a pen, pencil, paper, and calculator. Place it near a lamp or on top if your lamp has a flat top surface which does't heat up do to the type of bulb used for maximum benefit.
Don't do that if the top transmits heat as the Motus might get damaged. You don't want that to happen.

  • Robert asks: On the Motus, are the only face colors the C M Y of the original cube, or are others included as well, if so what colors? I am asking this because some combinations result in total clear transparency, something I don't get on the cube. The word “subtractive” appears in some of the manufactures descriptions.

    • 1. Robert answers: I just checked with the manufacturer and was informed for the Motus that CMY are the only face colors involved with no clear faces.

  • Gregor asks: The Motus is described as 50mm ( which is the size of the original square cubes). I have seen other references that the Motus is 30mm ( not 50mm). Please confirm?

    • 1. Vanishing Inc. Magic responds: This Motus is 50mm (2in) around.
  • Ged asks: The video gives the impression that the cube spins freely, unaided, for a period to time. But the text indicates that the cube is necessarily turned by hand, and placed on a flat surface it will simply subside. Is that the case?

    • 1. Vanishing Inc. Magic responds: It does not spin on its own.
  • Ged asks: I see that a 2" model sells for $32 on Amazon. Prices seem to be on a downward trend, so, my question, wouldn't it be prudent to wait a few weeks?

    • 1. Vanishing Inc. Magic responds: There are a lot of rip offs online. Be careful whom you buy from.
  • Tom asks: what does Motus stand for and does it come with magic effects?

    • 1. Vanishing Inc. Magic responds: We unsure what it stands for but no, there's no magic effects. It is "just" a thing of beauty.
  • Peter asks: You describe it as a “diamond polished to perfection”. It’s probably fair to allow a little marketing hype, so one would not expect a diamond (!) but is it made from a nice weighty piece of glass? So nice and tactile in your hand. Or is this “diamond polished to perfection” simply plastic?

    • 1. Vanishing Inc. Magic responds: The Motus is a heavy-duty plastic.
